King's Corner Dance Hall

King's Corner Dance Hall

King’s Corner was a restaurant-turned-disco that was opened in 1971 in Northwest Plaza. It was opened by Larry Prather, a Pizza King executive who owned several franchises. The restaurant offered live music and began serving Pizza King pizza in 1974. 

King’s Corner rebranded a bit in 1976 to have a disco feel, and was decorated with incredibly whimsical decor, such as $15,000 worth of antique items hung from the ceiling, a suit of armor, and Tiffany lamps hung from the ceiling. They also used local artifacts such as pillars from the Delaware Hotel and a bar made from a step from the old Central High School. During the rebrand, they moved away from live performers to instead featuring a DJ and allowing customers to pick the music

The King’s Corner had several brawls during its tenure, but temporarily closed in 1986 due to a lawsuit after a parking lot fight caused insurance rates to increase. The restaurant and disco closed sometime in the early 1990s, and the building was later home to insurance and real estate offices. It is now the site of Ruby Tuesday’s.
